Today’s nail art features the sugar spun technique I saw over at my friends’ blogs Chalkboard Nails and Just Tis Ems. It’s a tricky technique but very fun to do! Emmie made a really great tutorial for it which you can see here.
My result looks very 3D which is something you either hate or love. I’m quite fond of the end result, even though I wish my lines turned out thinner. I definitely need to practice more!
I’m really in love with the colour scheme, the matte nude base with the neon lines and studs works really great I think! Finally I had the perfect manicure for which I could use my pink neon studs from Born Pretty Store. They were sitting in my Helmer drawers for weeks waiting to be used. They are a lot more neon in person, I highly recommend them, they are super awesome!
These are the products I used for my manicure:
- Catrice – Nude (from the FeMALE limited edition)
- China Glaze – Love’s A Beach
- Pink Neon Studs
Yes that’s right, no top coat! This technique looks a million times better without top coat (in my opinion) so make sure to resist the urge! Hope you like it!
